In a statement by Former Deputy Director of the State Security Service (SSS) in Nigeria, Dennis Amachree, he said that the camcorder found by Fashola at the Lekki tollgate looked planted at the scene.
Fashola alongside Southwest governments and Ministers from the SouthWest had paid a condolence visit to the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, over the wanton loss of lives and properties in the state after hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protest in the state. Among the places destroyed was the Lekki tollgates.
However, while inspecting some of the government-owned facilities that were destroyed, Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola discovered a ”Camcoder” at the Lekki tollgate.
Many Nigerians expressed shock and dissatisfaction that it was the Minister who found the camera days after the tollgate was set on fire by the hoodlums.
In an interview with Channels TV today, the 4th of November, 2020 the former SSS deputy director, Dennis Amachree said the camcorder discovered by the Minister looked planted.
”After so many days, we saw a camcoder in plain view. Are they saying that camera was there and nobody knew about the presence of that camera? It was in plain view and the Minister went and removed it.
Who planted it? That is what we want to know. It was planted because there is no way..That Camcoder looks planted because there is no way that it will be plain view in one of the booths.
How come it was there and nobody saw it. There are mobile phone providers that went there to look at their lines that were damaged. Nobody saw that camera. It is not so tiny.
I am very interested in that camera. What is in it? Whoever planted it there must have also loaded it with something” Amachree said
